3/29 is very nice (and longer now!), but it's more about individual songs than the seguefest of 3/30...even Dark Star just stops without segueing.

3/31 is a fuzzy date... Miller notes that the date and order of songs are uncertain - and he's opened up a can of worms by putting this same /Caution>feedback>Goodnight on 1/22/68 (per Dick's notes). But apparently even he's not sure which date this section belongs to. Before, I was saying aha, 1/22 is complete! - now I'm not too certain - maybe Dick was just guessing, and this is 3/31 after all.

I don't hear the 1/22 possibility myself, the "3/31" Caution sounds different from the other Jan-Feb recordings, and more importantly it sounds so much like these very distinct sounding mixes from the Carousel in March. And there is the other thought that Bid You Goodnight doesn't show up until mid-March, but with so many holes in 68 that could never be said to be fact. Anything is possible, though, I guess.

You know, I agree with you now... It fit so perfectly into the missing gap of 1/22, and it even came from the Miller source, but the evidence is against that date! Quite the goose-chase on my part.
One thing I noticed on checking it again, the mix changes in Caution - the drums become much more up-front at about 3:30 into Caution, a sure sign of a matrix mix. And as it happens, the Dancing in the Streets from 3/31 also has a huge mix change - the 'audience' sound disappears when they go into the solo, and it becomes a straight SBD. (For that matter, it was like that on the older 3/30 source too, but I hadn't noted it.)
